Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
A fascinating travel adventure may be found in Jules Verne's The Adventures of a Special Correspondent. Claudius Bombarnac, a reporter tasked with travelling from a port on the Caspian to China through the Transasiatic Railways, serves as the protagonist of the novel. A fascinating cast of individuals, including one who is attempting to break the round-the-world record and another who is a stowaway, go with him on this expedition. In order for his novel to be more than simply a dry travelogue, Claudius hopes that one of them will end up becoming the protagonist. When a special car, guarded by soldiers, is added to the train and is claimed to be transporting the remains of a famous Mandarin, he is not dismayed. The huge Mandarin is really a sizable shipment that is being sent back to China from Persia. Unfortunately, the train must pass through a significant portion of China that is under the corrupt rule of robber-chiefs. Claudius locates his hero before the voyage is over.
